GLA vs GLO Dream11 Team: Glamorgan look to comeback from opening day’s defeat when they take on Gloucestershire today in a hectic schedule
Gloucestershire vs Glamorgan T20 Vitality Blast Best Dream 11 Team
For Glamorgan the opening day of the Vitality Blast didn’t exactly scour out as the side would have fathomed. With their bowling line-up being cleaned out, being dismissed from sight with disdain by Somerset, the side were left to suffer an 8 wicket defeat in their first match of the expansive tournament.
With an 88 run stand for the opening wicket seeing the side utilise the powerplay perfectly as openers Jeremy Lawlor (43) and David Lloyd (57) concurrently made the most of the batting conducive conditions prevalent, captain Colin Ingram came in to apply the finishing touches to his side. Blasting his way to a 28 ball 50, he plundered Somerset’s bowlers around the park to take his side to an extremely healthy 180-5, one which looked set to make things tough for Somerset.
However with the batting friendly conditions promises to us in the Cricket World Cup finally coming to the fore in the Vitality Blast, Glamorgan were left enduring an extremely disappointing result at the end of the encounter. Their bowlers failed as a unit with opener Tom Banton’s 34 ball 64 run knock providing the perfect platform for the ensuing batsmen to build around.
In the end the win was as easy as they come for Somerset with the side cruising to their first win of the league inside 18 overs to leave Glamorgan ruing a result which could have gone in their favour. And back at it again today as they indulge in a hectic schedule, Glamorgan will be looking to open their account when they take on Gloucestershire.
Things won’t get any easier for them though as they travel to Gloucestershire’s home stadium to take on a side who are extremely well-versed when it comes to crafting out exceptional batting performances. With immense depth in their batting line-up, Gloucestershire are filled to the brim with T20 specialists, players who can clean out any bowling line-up on the day.
For us, given Glamorgan’s dwindling bowling line-up which has seen their form severely dip after an extremely impressive outing in the Royal London Cup, Gloucestershire should go onto win this win. With both the sides packed with batsmen extradonaire, the final verdict will be passed by the bowlers and it’s the home side which possesses the more astounding bowling line-up at its disposal.

Batters for GLA vs GLO Dream11
After their half-centuries against Somerset, both Colin Ingram and David Lloyd have been chosen by us. Their innings showed that Glamorgan will be extremely dependant on the two this edition of the showpiece league and we see their affinity to score runs at will boding well for the side.

All-Rounders for GLA vs GLO Dream11
This is where we start compensating for the bats from the hosts’ team with Tom Smith and Ryan Higgins both coming in for us.
